My August Beauty Favourites!

Hi everyone! Today I am going to be sharing with you my August beauty favourites. To me, August has flown by! Anyway, I have found a lot of new beauty products this month which I love. So lets start!

So the first favourite of mine this month is this conditioner. I tend to straighten my hair most days which can leave my hair feeling quite damaged. As a result I tend to look for products which can help the condition of my hair. Fortunately I have found this and works really well! My hair has started to feel softer and I have noticed less split ends. It also smells really good as it has honey and apricot extracts. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with dry or damaged hair.

This has been constantly raved about a lot in the beauty community as it is apparently a great dupe for the Bioderma water. This works really well for getting rid of makeup and even waterproof makeup. It leaves my skin feeling really clean and soft. It also doesn't dry out my skin. At the moment it is on offer at Boots, so if you haven't tried this yet I definitely recommend you to do so!

I have been on the hunt for a great affordable bronzer for a long time, so when I found this I was pleased. It has a matte finish which is great for contouring and the best part of this, is that it is only £1! You get a lot of product for the price, so I can tell that this will last for a long time. The shade is really wearable and doesn't come off as an orange shade. It also has a great staying power to it which means that you don't have to keep re-applying it. 

This shade is such a perfect lilac colour which is great for summer. I really like the formula of these as they have great lasting power and are also quite thick consistency which means they look a bit like gel nails (hence the name) and also look really glossy. I love the colours in the range as well, I also have 'Lychee' which is a perfect nude colour. These are great if you want an affordable nail varnish with great staying power!

Everyone must have heard of these by now as they are everyone. I have reviewed the shade Mint Fresh HERE. The formula is great and I especially love this one as it gives off a nice cherry colour which is quite sheer. This shade would be perfect for Autumn. They are very affordable at only £2.99. They are great for dry lips as it softens them and moisturizes them well.

This has been great for summer as it has a light formula which isn't cakey at all. I was anxious to buy this at first as I didn't think it would match my skin tone, but I was wrong! The colour is perfect and matches my skin really well. This one is especially made for oily/ combination skin which is also perfect for me. It gives a good coverage, its not full coverage but it does cover redness. 

Real Techniques Duo Fiber Face brush £23.99 for the set of 3
I recently got the set for my birthday which includes the face brush, contour brush and eye brush (REVIEW HERE) I use this brush for applying blusher. These brushes are really soft  which means they are a dream to use. As they are duo fiber brushes, it means that they only apply the smallest amount of product to your face. They are great to apply a dusting of bronzer or blusher to your face.

Thanks for reading!
